Meet Matt & Janelle's family.

Matt and Janelle Steidinger have been involved missions for 18 years and serving in Brazil for 10. The Steidinger family, Matt and Janelle and their four children Mariah, Jaelah, Luke and Sierra, moved to Brazil in January 2013. After completing language school in Campinas (near São Paulo), they moved to Santarém on the Amazon River where they served for five years. In 2019, they moved further upriver to Humaita, a city located on the Madeira River (a tributary of the Amazon), to start a new base. Matt serves as base director and also as a pilot / mechanic while Janelle is involved in the Brazilian accounting for the mission. The whole family enjoys serving Christ as they minister to the river people of Brazil.
